Bsweden's combination of high quality craftsmanship and design gives trend-setting lamps that become modern classics. The company was founded in 1993 by Gunnel Svensson, herself literally raised among furniture, design and quality at more than a hundred-year-old family company Svenssons in Lammhult. Over the years, Bsweden's lamps have traveled from the factory in the Småland forests all over the world and on the journey won a number of prestigious awards.
Peter Nilsson's chandelier Kumulus in a specially designed model of over six meters, can be found at the department store Harrod's in London.
Kumulus is also available at Hotel Lisboa in Maccao and Terence Conran has chosen Manhattan for its Great Eastern Hotel. In Sweden there are lamps in both private homes and public environments.
Gunnel's Manhattan shuttle with its nearly fifteen years still belongs to one of the company's best sellers. Among the latest additions to the collection are Anna Berglund's two series, Valborg and Tratten, both of which are handmade in finest Swedish glass.
What is it that makes a small design-oriented lamp manufacturing company in the middle of "dark" Småland has become something of a spearhead when it comes to making good Swedish design a bigger audience? What now good design is for something? Gunnel defines the concept with a definite: "It must withstand the eye's wear and tear."
We work with a number of smaller manufacturers in our geographical proximity, all of whom are specialists within their respective slopes: lathes, woodworkers, glassblowers and saddlers to name a few.
The glass in our lamps is blown on Bergdala Glasbruk and in Micke Johansson's cabin in Örsjö. A close collaboration where everyone's knowledge is utilized and the long-standing tradition of glass production in Småland has to live on. Something we are very proud of.
